Under the sea, there is much more biodiversity than on land. In the context of Phaeselis, only a few undersea monsters will be investigated, though. This page will contain the many monsters of the Great Sea that sailors to Phaeselis tend to report on their travels. Monsters will include the Nereids, the hippocampus, the sahaugin, and some others.

Monsters of the Great SeaEdit
- Aegæon: Said to be the mouthpiece of King Triton or Poseidon, the Aegaeons act as warlords for divine armies, and often act as second in command to elemental demigods. Many have kingdoms of their own, ruling with a fair but iron fist. All natives of the Plane of Water respect and fear them; some few hate them for both their power and commanding aspect.
- Viridian Algoid: A plant that is the aquatic cousin to the shambling mound, it's no less dangerous. 
- Reptile Anumus: A creation of the Sebek-kas, the Reptile Anumus has a resemblance to their god, Sobek.
- Architeuthian: Architeuthians are intelligent undersea nomads that avoid contact with most other sea dwelling races. On rare occasions they will trade food for weapons and other items that they cannot create themselves with tritons or aquatic elves. Architeuthians fear the sahuagin greatly, for the sea-devils see them as a delicacy.
- Architeuthian Shaper: Shaper architeuthians are philosophers and mystics of their race, supplying them with the tools they need to survive their sometimes harsh travels. While they rarely lead a tribe, they are viewed as valuable members, to be protected at all costs.
- Beachcomber: Beachcombers are jellyfish-like predators that lie in shallow coastal waters, and use their tentacles to search the shore for anything organic. While the creature's body is quite large, few ever actually glimpse it.
- Cavejelly: Cave jellies come in a variety of mineral types and sizes, though all superficially resemble jellyfish embedded with shards of stone or gems. They originate from the borders of the elemental planes of Earth, Ooze, and Water.
- Cindarian: Created by the Lemurians from halflings using a lion fish template, the Cindarians are lionfish-styled mermaids complete with dazzling stripes and deadly spines.
- Coral, Brain:
Though they cannot move or speak, brain corals are deeply feared hazards to ocean life. The very alien nature of these beautifully patterned corals upsets most civilized races- no other animal beneath the sea so nonchalantly decimates its prey in such a gruesome manner.
- Cerebral Crab: Greatly underestimated, cerebral crabs are often viewed as dangerous vermin, if they are noticed as anything more than unusually large and morbid hermit crabs. In truh, the crabs are highly intelligent and deadly plotters, unnaturally hardy, and possessing a deeply evil nature.
- Crinus Demon: Crinus are vicious cephalopod demons that travel in great packs through the Abyssal seas. They hate all creatures save others of their kind, and will sometimes fearlessly attack even greater demons with abandon. They are a massive threat when summoned, because they tend to multiply rapidly, overwhelming an unprepared summoner and devastating the local landscape.
- Jormangandi Demon: Jormungandi are demons of vast physical power and possessing the black humor of a serial killer. They are fond of lurking within sight of intelligent creatures, and driving them mad with their powers, until they grow bored with the game and rise to destroy all they see.
- Dragon, Black: Lording over the darkest swamps and marshes, black dragons are the undisputed masters of their domain, ruling through cruelty and intimidation. Those who dwell within a black dragon's reach live in fear. Black dragons tend to make their lairs in remote parts of the swamp, preferably in caves at the bottom of dark and fetid pools.
- Dragon, Bronze: Bronze dragons have been known to ally with travelers and adventurers if the cause and reward is right and just.
- Dragon, Choral (Song): Choral dragons are good natured creatures, content to tend the great coral reefs. They do most everything slowly; think, feed, breed, speak. They are slow to anger, but anyone damaging the reefs they protect is attacked with the power and tenacity of a hurricane.
- Dragon, Crescendo (Song): Crescendo dragons travel close to the shorelines of the world. They are social creatures, enjoying interaction with dolphins, whales, humanoids, and other dragons. They trade gossip, knowledge, and information with anyone that will speak with them.
- Reef Drake: Reef drakes are distant relatives of pseudo dragons, and share many similarities. When encountered in the wild, they are vicious predators, capable of taking down prey much larger than themselves.
- Eel, Nightmare: A frightening black eel with a frightening intellect. They are often used as guards by the Pisceans.
- Electric Eel: The electric eel (Electrophorus electricus) is an electric fish, and the only species in its genus. It is capable of generating powerful electric shocks of up to 860 volts, which it uses for hunting, self-defense and communicating with fellow eels. It is an apex predator in its South American range despite living in an environment rich in predators such as humans, dogs, caimans, jaguars, giant otters, giant snakes, and birds of prey that kill fish of similar size of the electric eel as prey. Despite its name, it is not an eel, but rather a knifefish.
